AFWERX is a network of people who want to help create a better Air Force and Space Force for all Airmen and Guardians. There are innovators who work for AFWERX full-time, others who take on passion projects outside of their traditional jobs and tap into the AFWERX ecosystem for support, and plenty more who collaborate with us as part of their position at Air Force bases around the world.
Organizationally, AFWERX has three primary efforts: AFVentures, Spark, and Prime.
AFWERX combines startup urgency with the largest pool of motivated talent in the world to uncover opportunities to improve Air and Space Force capabilities, connect and engage the right stakeholders, and facilitate outcomes.
